General Policies and Procedures
Thesis or Dissertation Submission Procedures
Once a student has successfully defended the thesis or dissertation, the major professor must submit the Oral Defense Form with the signatures of the student's advisory committee and division chair to the Graduate Studies Office. The student must submit a digital copy of the thesis or dissertation to the Graduate Studies Office two weeks before the deadline established by the Toulouse Graduate School. This digital copy must be formatted as a single “.doc” or “.docx” file, must include the last name of the student in its title, and must be sent as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. This process provides the Director of Graduate Studies and the Dean of the College of Music adequate time to read and approve the thesis. Once they have done so, the Graduate Studies Office will notify the student that s/he may submit the final document to the Toulouse Graduate School. The Graduate Studies Office cannot guarantee consideration of theses submitted less than two weeks prior to the deadline established by the Toulouse Graduate School.
Committee Designation Form
By the completion of 12 hours of graduate coursework, the student must consult with the major professor concerning the appointment of an advisory committee. After the consultation, the student should fill out this form and take it to each of the requested members. When the signatures have been obtained, this form should be returned to the Office of Graduate Studies in Music with a completed degree plan.
